Dear loyal Newbiiz customers,

On behalf of the Newbiiz staff, we apologize for an unfortunate system error that occurred on the evening of (08/14/08). The pricing for the HIS ATI Radeon 4870 (Item # HIS-4870) was mistakenly set at $213.13 on Pricewatch. This price is intended to be for the 4850 model and has since been corrected in our system.

NewBiiz.com makes every effort to ensure that the information contained on this site is accurate. However, in accordance to the Terms and Conditions agreed to upon prior to the purchase, NewBiiz reserve the right to cancel any orders due to typographical or pricing errors. At this time, your order will be cancelled, any charges made will be voided and returned to your account.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience. Newbiiz will continue to strive to meet our loyal customer’s expectations.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,
